Ooga Booga Game


This is a catholic youth ministry game that involves just three people and is an excellent icebreaker game.   I have met a few in youth ministry that do not agree with games that embarrass someone.  If you are one of those people then I apologize, but this game is not for you.

You do need minimal materials for this game.  You need at least two chairs.   Basically what happens is you grab one person that has never played or seen the game before and have them sit in one chair.  The person leading the game sits in another chair across from them.

It is sort of like a Simon says game.  The person leading does something and the person following has to mirror the actions and sounds that the leader makes.  It really doesn’t matter what you do for actions.  The goal is to get the person standing and sitting.  Then after a short while you have a third person get an extremely damp rag and place it one the seat of the person that has never seen the game. When they sit down, their bottom gets extremely wet and that is the end of the game.

I found a video on YouTube of a group that did this if you would like a little better example.  This video is embedded above.
